This tutorial creates a Rails version of old green screen Start SQL Interactive Session (STRSQL) utility. Most IBM i professionals use STRSQL on IBM i, but if you have not, simply sign on to your IBM i 5250 and enter STRSQL on the command line. Other products duplicate the STRSQL support as a client/server application, but this Rails version stays completely on the IBM i server and use any device with a browser as the interface.
